A sex tape can make you famous, but it's still a no-no to most people!

On Tuesday, Miss Delaware Teen USA Melissa King resigned the crown that she won in November, after a porn website posted a graphic video it claimed she was in. Although the woman in the video looks like King and refers to a March birthday (which she has) and competing in pageants, Delaware's The News Journal reports that King has claimed she is not the woman in the video.

Asked whether it's her performing sex acts with an unidentified man, the 18-year-old King told the newspaper. "Absolutely not. It is not." She continued, "There are comments saying this, however, it's not comments that are true."

King reportedly said she has a lawyer, whom she didn't name, and said she would be releasing a statement.

For now, Dara Busch, the spokeswoman for the Delaware pageant, confirmed to the newspaper only that King did in fact relinquish her title through a letter from her attorney. Busch did not immediately return an omg! request for comment.

King is the only the latest in a line of beauty queens who've lost their titles after scandals. The list includes actress Vanessa Williams, who was forced to give up her Miss America title in 1984 after nude photos of her appeared in Penthouse, and Kari Ann Peniche, 2003's Miss United States Teen, who lost her crown after losing her clothes for the pages of Playboy.
